Subject: My favorite show from 79-88
But they're not nearly done. A super long space follows drums with Phil bursting in with wild abandon (waaaaah, heeyouwuuuuu!) And then it's Stills time -- I don't care how f*&$ed up he was or how off-key -- the energy of that performance is off the charts! Everything after that is great as well, including an extended Not Fade with Stills wailing away.
Well, OK, maybe it's my favorite from that period outside of 12-31-78 or 12-31-81.
Subject: Early 80's Fierceness
The show is a 5, but the recording leaves her at 4 here. I love the audience tapes myself, but I'd love to see a nice board of this show up here. ROOOAAARRRR!!!!
Subject: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Pt 2
Subject: early 80's meltdown
Early 80's is an IDIOT! I was at both these shows with Stills and he could still smoke Jerry at a moments notice. Remember Stills honed his playin' with numerous jams at a beach house with Hendrix. Just listen and he still rips it. I've played guitar professionally for 35 years so I should know...plus saw over 200+ shows from 78-95. This guy just doesn't know his ass from his elbow.
Subject: Much better than the board
-Drums.. Brent- it all is on. Mickey gots xylophones and new cymbmbals from Japan.. etc. Phil is slappin time. Tight and a standaed for me.
Bombs on slipknot.. Forget 'bout it. Where in Jersey
Subject: Rollin' Peggy -o-
Jerry big Boss was laying it down hard and Brent backed him with those hypnotic bells & buzzer keys timed out perfectly, they were probably gettin off themselves. Hot tours left and right, I don't care what anyone says about 1983-84 He was smokin' night after night. (literally)
Grate stuff in my book except Stephen Stills
that dude was Wack and couldnt hang by this time in 83 he was fat and shot. sorry.
Hot HSF check it.
Subject: SO sweet
Subject: Fantastic Show
I think the is the best of the Help->Slip ->franklins of the 80's - it smokes. I attended the show (and many others between 77 - 87) and this is in my top 5.
The 2nd set just takes off - The Help -slip - franklins is superb, followed by a funky Women R smarter - into a Playin' that melts away.
Great show - Up there with the 10/12/84 (another East Coast Gem we saw) for me.
I have been listeneing to this show for the past 20+ years off and never disapointed.
Its a great show
Subject: First of many

Subject: Stills still FAAAAT
